CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate (PC) Resins are an advanced material for devices requiring gamma or electron-beam irradiation.
During these irradiation processes, it is typical for polycarbonate to become discolored. CALIBRE™ MEGARAD™ Polycarbonate Resins use patented color-compensation technology to dramatically improve color recovery following irradiation with a technology that has proven to be successful for over 25 years.
Trinseo offers a range of polycarbonate polymer tints that are designed to provide the appropriate amount of color compensation for a select number of irradiation sterilization cycles to meet final desired color specifications.
This resin is specially formulated to meet the radiation sterilization needs of the healthcare industry, while providing exceptional clarity, heat resistance, impact strength and processing.
